I know the sims 3 university life desktop icon is Orange as i watched the live chat. I dont know where to find it to add it to the page though? = Geogiles (talk) 22:45, January 12, 2013 (UTC)

Could you show proof by providing a link (not uploading an image) here?01:25, January 13, 2013 (UTC)

[edit source]

So nice seeing this on the cover of a Sims game again. Glad I asked Graham about this early last year. Also, getting a nostalgic feeling from it being there. Anyone else feeling this way as well? :)The Black Scorpion (talk) 20:42, January 8, 2013 (UTC)

Detailed features template[edit source]

What is the purpose for having {{The Sims 3: University Life/Detailed features}}? Why wouldn't we just include this information on the page directly? Does anyone have an explanation for why the template was added instead? -- LostInRiverview talk ~ blog 06:59, January 10, 2013 (UTC)

I was referred to this question.
The reasons why I separated the info to a separate template are to avoid messy edits in the article, which come from the detailed information and to prevent contributors to endlessly scroll down the article (if editing the main article and not a particular section).
But, that is just my opinion. If there is no need for the template, then I can transfer them to the article and added the delete template there.

PS: I may add more reasons if only they are reasonable.

University or College?[edit source]

What should really call the Sims University as, for this wikia? University or college?

Don't we call it "Sims University" at the moment? I'm not sure what you asked though. :/ Nikel Talk Vote! 02:10, January 20, 2013 (UTC)
It seems that, in the edits, that some called it a university, while the others called it a college.03:15, January 20, 2013 (UTC)
Really? I avoid high-traffic pages like this one from my watch, so I didn't notice. This is one reason why we shouldn't have created Sims University page, because the name is provisory. I think we should just agree to call it "Sims University" at the moment, because of the number of usage in this wiki already... I guess. Nikel Talk Vote! 03:39, January 20, 2013 (UTC)
Hold on. Isn't "Sims University" already the name of the university? If so, why would they call it "college"? Nikel Talk Vote! 03:42, January 20, 2013 (UTC)

I have two questions...[edit source]

1.Will there be a new age? - In Sims 2: University they created young adults just for university...will there be an even younger age than young adults, but older than teens?

2.Can you have kids in university?

S C H N E T Z K A (Let's Chat) 21:47, January 21, 2013 (UTC)

Haven't gotten that part of information yet. But I doubt both questions to be true... I heard that Young Adults and older can now go to college with no age restriction, and I guess the as Sims go to college, the main world is "frozen," just like in adventures. Nikel Talk Vote! 05:50, January 23, 2013 (UTC)
1. No, there's no new age. You don't need to be a young adult (or teen!) to go to university - you can be an elder or adult.
2. No, you can't have kids in university. You can use mods, I think...I'm not sure. (talk) 17:43, February 7, 2015 (UTC)

Q & A[edit source]

Here's some new information from the latest Q & A. From here, I'd point out that:

  • No pets in college again.
  • No secret society
  • Only playable Sims go to college. Just like traveling. Just like boarding school. The rest of the residents in the town remain uneducated. Sigh.

New Life States?[edit source]

I was wondering is there going to be a new life states if its not it will be like sims 2 free time because it doesn't feature new life states. If it is I think the new life states will be super hero. Because some nerds of the upcoming game might like super hero comics so I think Super Hero will be the new life states for S3 - UL.

Emilythebrawler (talk) 22:02, February 1, 2013 (UTC)

Uh, no. Rumor is, that the Plantsim from The Sims 2 Seasons will return. There's a few things that hints towards this. 1. 'Play with herbs' 2. A machine with a tube the size of a Sim seen in the trailer that also has a place to add samples. In the trailer it was a plant. 3. During the most recent Origin live broadcast, they goofed and we could see a green hair style in CAS during the demo. It looked more like a plant than hair. We'll know for sure on the Valentine's Day live broadcast.--The Black Scorpion (talk) 23:27, February 1, 2013 (UTC)

New Songs[edit source]

Here seems to be the list of new songs in UL. May be needed for list of songs in The Sims 3 later. Nikel Talk Vote! 05:05, February 16, 2013 (UTC)

Hello first time on this wiki, but they just posted this on Facebook today     facebook post:  Tivis014 (talk) 16:11, February 27, 2013 (UTC)

Gnome Mascot Dance a.k.a Gangham Style[edit source]

Why is the gnome mascot dance Gangnam Style? 22:29

The fact that there's gangnam style in this game makes me sick... and even more sick when I see this gif. Nikel Talk Vote! 18:00, March 11, 2013 (UTC)
Gangnam Style was famous along my classmates when I got this. I went onto it after I installed it, got my Sim becoming a mascot, and then I selected 'Dance'. I screamed at my computer! (talk) 21:48, February 25, 2015 (UTC)

Science Skill[edit source]

Until the page is created, thought I'd add a little spoiler here. Once you max out the Science skill, a Group Science Experiment (Doomsday Machine) is added to the family inventory. The is the same 3 Sim machine found near the Science Building.The Black Scorpion (talk) 04:47, March 6, 2013 (UTC)

Ah, that machine? I thought it could be just buyable, but I haven't explored much in this pack... Nikel Talk Vote! 18:26, March 7, 2013 (UTC)

how come the university campus gets affected by the weather (Seasons) but the other worlds such as France, China and Eygpt (World Adventures) doesn't? just curious Zileyfan101 14:48, March 26, 2013 (UTC)zileyfan101

I really can't tell. It's just that EA decided to do so, although Twallan's Traveler allows you to have seasons there, I think... Maybe EA just didn't want to risk having any issues regarding temperature or precipitation while we're adventuring, which is kind of stupid and odd. Nikel Talk Vote! 15:04, March 26, 2013 (UTC)
